Survey Charge

The Survey Charge is a singular-purpose tool used in conjunction with the Pump Jack and Mining Quarry to allow for player-placed monument-exclusive entities to exist in non-disclosed locations. It is not currently available in the game to players except when spawned by RUST admins.

Players were (and still technically are) able to throw down the survey charge in random locations to receive a geological survey readout.

  • If the charge detonates and produces fuel and a crater, then that location is suitable for a Pump Jack to retrieve fuel.
  • If it produces ore, then a mining quarry is suitable.
  • If nothing reports, players must use another survey charge elsewhere until an appropriate readout is achieved.

Once placed, these Survey Charges cannot be picked up and are a one-time use.
